The USDA WASDE report was the big news this week but judging by the activity in prices it was not too exciting a report. From a corn point of view then report overall was quite neutral with crops up in some areas and down in others but with ending world corn stocks expected to be about 13 percent lower. There was very little change in US corn numbers although there were some post-report comments that corn use in ethanol should have increased – perhaps in the next report........please click PDF to see more details

This week is a holiday week in many countries with some closed last Thursday and Friday and others closed next Monday. These three/four day weekends can lead to very strange price action as many traders, especially futures traders, try to cover their positions in advance of a long weekend --- no one wants to take on a three-day risk. ​Grain markets in the US and Europe were closed in Friday but earlier in the week we did have a small rally in all grain and soybean/soymeal prices..........
